No, that isn't true at all...
Under both Fedora 12 and RHEL 5.4 I am using the 64 bit JDK... To get the
Java plugin working, all I had to do -with the Sun JDK- was
ln -s /usr/java/latest/jre/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so
And restart Firefox...
Of course, in this instance /usr/java/latest is a sym link to
It works just fine for me... I'm sure I'd have similar results on CentOS
